Get away to the Mendocino coast. Tides Turn has a private view of the ocean, yet is a home with lots of room to share with friends or family. We have installed solar panels to help preserve our wonderful California coast and o our part to reduce global warming. Located next to the turn of the century hamlet of Albion only minutes from the charming Victorian town of Mendocino, 7 miles north. Enjoy the birds floating on the updrafts or the boats coming and going as the tides change below. Watch the everchanging sea through the only wooden trestle bridge on the coast of California as the waves crash in the cove and the whales pass during migration season. Relax in the hot tub or barbeque on the deck. Mendocino has a lot to offer. Investigate the tons of drift wood at nearby Navarro beach just 3 miles south, or picnic in the Redwoods or bring a canoe or kayak to explore the Albion River or go wine tasting in Anderson Valley or try the trails at Van Damme State Park & Beach, 3.5 miles north. You can treat yourself to our local restaurants, the best on the coast - the Ledford House or the Albion River Inn or rundown to the Albion Market and deli for a quick fix or Harvest Market in Fort Bragg can deliver all you need to Tides Turn in Albion.?

Perfect getaway at the coast! Well appointed and maintained home, with all the amenities one needs. Easy access, quiet, store and services nearby if needed. A cozy retreat from which to watch the ocean, the birds, and the deer.
Wonderful Relaxing trip at Tides Turn
We stayed at Tides Turn while attending a family wedding nearby and the property was lovely. Wonderful views, lovely home with comfortable surroundings and a beach like atmosphere. Sitting in the hot tub while enjoying the scenery was a real treat. Mendocino and Ft. Bragg are just up the road. Several farmers markets in the area on the weekends. We enjoyed a great meal at the Little River Inn. Can't wait to come back to Tides Turn!
Breathtaking Views and Luxurious Amenities
We will be back! The home is breathtaking, spacious and has more than enough amenities to keep you busy during your stay. We had three clear days and nights with fantastic sunsets every evening while dining on the outdoor deck. If you love bird watching, Tides Turn provided us with enough bird seed to last our entire stay and provided daily entertainment for the adults and kids. We enjoyed using the fireplace, relaxing to music after a long day of diving in Albion. Thank you again for your hospitality! I'm telling all of our friends to be sure to find you on VRBO and book their vacation!
This is a wonderful house to rent for a large group. We had eight people and it was perfect with the four separate bedrooms. The house was exactly as advertised, very clean, and super comfortable. The setting is spectacular. Owners were very pleasant to work with and answered all my questions ahead of our visit. I can't say enough good things about this house. I look forward to another stay at Tides Turn. A must is dinner at the Ledford House just across Highway 1, it was superb.
This vacation rental is amazing - it met and exceeded all of our expections. The house is beautiful and it has the best views of the ocean - the pictures do not do it justice. While it is a bit of a drive into Mendocino and Fort Bragg, it is totally worth it. The rooms were all decorated nicely and were very spacious. Everything was clean and we felt at home right away. My niece fell in love with the all birds on the balcony deck/patio every morning and the adults fell in love with the hot tub. We definitely plan on staying there again and we're already trying to figure out the dates!
Photos simply do not do it Justice
We stayed here with our Granddaughter x 3 days in mid-June. There were two major problems: (1) Our stay was too short, and (2) we wished not to depart.
For our stay, the downstairs (two bedrooms) were locked off and surely not needed. This is a gorgeous home with spectacular >180 degree views from the main (top) level. There is a spacious living area with THE best equipped kitchen we have ever encountered in a vacation home, and this living-area separates two master suites, both also with panoramic views.
We were contacted twice by the owner in our short stay, once by email to share photos of their neighbors kit foxes... and to invite us over for a view, and the other was by phone to make sure our needs were met. The home is immaculate. Fine dining is within comfortable driving distance and activities abound for inquisitive adults and kiddos alike.
One of THE spectacular aspects of this beautiful locale is that it is one of the last places in California that tons of people are not. Thus, we are hesitant to submit this review, hoping we can return frequently in the future.
Experiencing Seahorse as guests makes one feel quite special and photos... as the title says... do not do it justice.
Beachcombing, canoeing, whale and bird watching, wine tasting and lots of local festivals.
